Barcelona, NY (Lake Erie) Propeller ONEIDA Wreck, Nov 1852
The Cleveland Herald, of Thursday, says there is no longer any doubt of the loss of the propeller Oneida, and but little hope remains that any of those on board her were saved. It is supposed that there were seventeen persons in all on board, and it is rumored that besides the crew, there were two passengers.
We have been unable to ascertain the names of the crew, but believe the officers were:
W. S. RICH, Captain.
SAMUEL HULGATE, 1st Mate.
CHARLES WILLIAMS, 2d Mate.
E. B. SHERWOOD, Clerk.
_______ FERRY, Engineer.
HENRY WHITE, Steward.
We understand that the Keystone State passed the Oneida keel up, and that for nine miles above Dunkirk the beach is strewn with portions of the wreck and cargo, but no bodies have yet been found. The small boat, with the books and papers of the Oneida had come ashore, also the provision box, and at Erie, flour from the wreck had been found.
